Osun: Iwo Gets New king (Photos)


The ancient city of iwo who has been left without a king for
three years, yesterday got a new king. The Oluwo-elect, Abdul-Rasheed Adewale
Akanbi, entered the town for the commencement of his installation processes
yesterday amidst heavy traffic jam as his convoy snaked through Ori-eru,
Odo-ori, Ile-omosan and Ojaba axis of the city where people lined up the
streets to welcome him.

Speaking after the installation ceremony, an excited Secretary
to the State Government, Moshood Adeoti, described Monday as an historical day
in the ancient town. Adeoti said, “I salute the courage and understanding of
all, this day is historic in the sense that Iwo for about three years was
without a king, but we are happy that this day of a new king has come.
‘’We need the cooperation of all and sundry. I call on
everybody to join hands with the new monarch in the task of building the town.
Iwo cannot afford to stand still, we must strive as we enter a new era to
develop our Land.
‘’I call on the people of Iwo, most especially youths, ‎to
rally round the new monarch and the state government for the development of
Iwoland, the state and the country at large.”
